Testimonials

Well we booked this holiday for a different type of break, away from the all inclusives and resorts,We set off to see the lake which by the way is massive, and not to forget the wildlife Stingrays,Dolphins Sea Eagles just to mention some of the wildlife on this beautiful waterway, some people only see Forster or Tuncurry from their home on the water, but we set out to get to the very bottom of the lakes not literally of course, it took us two days but we arrived at Paradise Palms in time for the beautiful $1 oysters and a lovely lunch at our favourite club the Reccie. Our host Joel kindly delivered us some fuel as were running a bit low but this guy couldn't have been a better host nothing was too much trouble. The couple have only owned the business since christmas 2017 so they have a lot to do I know the boats are looking little bit tired but SS Collongolook served us well and with a lick of paint and some TLC we'll give you 5 stars thanks again Joel & Co.
Hired the larger houseboat for the week, the service we received from Joel & Co was first class... These guys couldn’t of done anymore to ensure our week on the lake was a fantastic experience. Joel happily captained our boat & set us up on some amazing parts of the lake. Every second day we called back to the boat shed grabbing some supplies or just to tie up the runabout to venture down town.. we were always meet with a warm welcome. Great family atmosphere Obviously the business name says it all Number 1 for a reason..... Make these guys your first call Highly recommended.
Recently hired one of the 33ft Houseboats with our 2 grandchildren for 5 nights and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Joel took us to our first mooring, explaining everything we needed to know. The boat was well equipped, easy to operate, spacious, clean and we loved being able to captain our own boat and explore the Lake. We also used the little runabout to explore further. The water was clear blue and we saw dolphins most days, stingrays and an enormous turtle. Birdlife amazing. The kids loved jumping off the boat and swimming. Joel picked us up from our last mooring and returned us to the wharf. A memorable adventure. A very professionally run business. Highly recommended.
